Rickenbacker tollbooths coming down?

Miami Herald transportation reporter Al Chardy is reporting today on the discussion about open-road tolling on the Rickenbacker Causeway. I hadn't known the opposition was as hot as he describes, though. Certainly the commentary here has been mild.

To nobody's surprise, a number of readers piled on in the comment board with a lot of anti-bicycle remarks. Many reflect impatience with rider recklessness, which is something we do need to pay attention to. Meanwhile, it would be worthwhile to add our view of the thing. The story's right here.

Weird, off-message commentators always hijack the Herald stories commentary sections. Other ways to get your thoughts out there: Write letters to the editor: heralded@miamiherald.com
Also, there's a discussion topic on the issue on the Friends of Virginia Key group page on Facebook.
